The Seattle Seahawks quarterback will attend spring training with the New York Yankees, his agent Mark Rogers told MLB Network Radio on Monday, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

Wilson reported to spring training past year and appeared in his first competitive baseball game since 2011.

Wilson was drafted twice by Major League Baseball clubs - the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and the Colorado Rockies in 2011 - but he ultimately chose to pursue a career in the NFL, and went to the Seattle Seahawks 75th overall in 2012. He was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. He played parts of two seasons in Colorado's minor league system, hitting five home runs and stealing 19 bases. Last Feburary, he was traded from the Rangers to the Yankees for future considerations.

It's been successful not only on air but online, in syndication, internationally for ABC (Studios)". The final season will air at a yet to be determined time next TV season.

Wilson, 30, threw for 35 touchdowns this year, a single season career- and franchise-record. Seattle's season ended with a 24-22 loss to Dallas in the NFC Wild Card game.

The six-time Pro Bowl QB might have been a baseball player if his football career didn't flourish after the Seahawks picked him in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

The New York Yankees will have a Super Bowl victor at camp when spring training begins in February. He probably won't report February 18 along with position players.
